Microsoft Tag

I've played with Microsoft Tag a little.
It's quite amazing how fast it catches and resolves those tags on my phone, I just have to point the camera to the tag very briefly for the application to recognize it.
Yes, it is essentially a barcode with a site behind it but this type of barcode can be read by any phone with a camera (and an internet connection)

I made a Tag for this site

Went to a local humanist meeting

They were hosting a lecture from a popular (amongst humanists) Belgian Professor, Prof. Johan Braeckman who did a lecture on Darwin and creationism, ID...
I'm a member but the Belgian humanist organizations clearly need to become more organized, there are chapters in just about every city and they pretty much operate on their own.  I was a member of HVV in a different city so I didn't get any info on what was going on in the city I live in now.
I'm now member of both chapters and I will not extend the membership of my original city when it comes up.

The lecture was OK, a rehash of a lot of things I already knew but still good to listen to and learned a few more things about Darwin's personal life.
The drink afterwards was good to find out a bit about the organization but other than that it was pretty cold (literally and figuratively)
